The Hydrangea Hobo Bag - PDF Sewing Pattern
The Hydrangea is a large size hobo bag with a large front exterior pocket that has an additional zippered pocket built into the flap closure. It has a large gusset to give it a lot of depth and on the inside I've included 2 large slip pockets. I've also provided instructions on making an adjustable strap so the bag can be worn cross body or over one shoulder.
1 yard exterior fabric of your choice: quilt weight, cotton, canvas, denim (interface accordingly - quilt weight will need more interfacing)
Note: this is the total amount required for body, front pocket and strap. More may be required if you are fussy cutting a pattern
3/4 yard quilt weight cotton for lining and front pocket lining
1/2 yard medium/heavyweight interfacing of your choice (sew-in or fusible)
1.5 yard lightweight fusible for pockets and strap
2 small scraps of fusible 2” x 2” for snap
2 small scraps of peltex or duck canvas 1.5” x 1.5” for snap
(1) 18mm magnetic snap
(1) 12” zipper (metal or nylon)
(1) 8” zipper (will be cut down)
(1) 1.25” rectangle slide
(2) 1.25” or 1.5” O-rings
Width: 14 inches at widest point
Height: 10 inches at centre
